The club explained the reason for appointing Kim Tae-hoon, saying, “He has excellent ability to cope with breaking balls and contact, so he is valuable as a pinch hitter and will increase the depth of the team’s outfield.”

Kim Tae-hoon, who had been withdrawn by a shortstop grounder in the second inning and a strikeout in the fourth inning, struck out a shot that signaled the start of the pursuit in the seventh, trailing 0-3. After two deaths, Kang Min-ho went to the ground with a left-handed hit.
Kim Tae-hoon, who entered the third at-bat, took a left-handed two-run arch against Kim Min. He pushed a two-seam fastball (145 km) on the first pitch and blew it out of the left wall. 2-3. Kim Tae-hoon brought two home bases after hitting a heavy hit in the 8th inning with 2 outs and bases loaded 3-4. 5-4 reverse.
